Abstract

[For the last decade and a half, the role played by universities in economic growth, particularly through university–industry linkages, has been occupying the minds of policymakers and academics equally. The direct influence of university research in economic development is, however, not new. Since their inception, more than a century ago, agriculture universities through their research on new varieties of seeds, disease resistant crops, etc., have played a vital role in increasing the ­agricultural productivity and farmers’ incomes. Extension services provided by the agricultural universities, through which they transferred new technologies and ­associated knowledge to farmers, have been the main channels through which ­university research has been commercialized.]
